Java Naming Reminder
At JavaOne, Sun Microsystems announced a new Java technology naming convention, whereby future versions of the platform will be called “Java EE 5”, “Java SE 6", and “Java ME”. Since that time, there have been a few members of the Java community using “JEE”, rather than “Java EE”. We'd like to encourage you to spell out “Java” in referring to versions of the platform -- especially in external communications, such as websites and blogs. Please take a few minutes to understand the reasons for the new naming schema, included in this article, plus links to an FAQ and a 1-page naming guide.
